GP survey for carers in Croydon
Help us improve local healthcare services for carers. Are you a carer registered with a GP in Croydon? The Carers’ Information Service would like to hear about your experience using your GP. Your comments and views will help us get GPs' attention. Whatever your experience, good or bad, they want to hear about it. Carers are more at risk of long-term health issues such as strokes, yet almost 40% put off medical treatment due to the pressures of caring. We will use your feedback to push for better carer support from local primary healthcare services.
The survey deadline is Friday 31st March 2017. Fill in the survey online here.
